Today we meditate upon the words of Isaiah and Hippolytus about perseverence during the Easter season.
We are in the season of Easter, a season of joy, but this does not mean that we will not continue to face trials as we strive to truly become united with our Resurrected Lord. Yet, it is in these trials that we have faith that we who have joined ourselves to the suffering of Christ will also be joined in his Resurrection - that it is because of what Christ has accomplished in his own rising that our trials will too bear fruit. That, as Isaiah says, our desert will exult and we will one day see the glory of the Lord and the splendor of our God.
